One of the biggest drawbacks to watching 2012’s “Hunted” was the degree to which the cinematographers liked to apply various filters to the end product, frequently rendering scenes murky and details hard to see. So, it’s always particularly enjoyable when unfiltered publicity pictures of Mr. Malahide as Jack Turner turn up, allowing us to see what he looks like in his natural plumage. Here are a few examples of Jack Turner unfiltered that we’ve discovered online.
Another of Admin’s finds, from Buzzfocus.com. This is from episode eight, “Snow Maiden“, after Jack’s been caught in an explosive blast meant to kill him (but they missed). Who says you can’t mix polka-dots and stripes? Also, note the battle damage:
For contrast, here’s a grab from the same scene as it was broadcast, except now it’s been filtered:
See? Very washed out and anemic; the colours are hardly visible. I realize this was the cinematographer’s (and possibly the director’s) stylistic choice, but I really do have to wonder why they went that way. Sometimes entire episodes (*cough*”LB”*cough*) were so murky you could hardly see anything. But there’s no reason to hide Jack’s colours, especially when he seems to have put so much thought into his wardrobe. 😉
